  1. You’ve been a brilliant boy, well cultured and highly intelligent. I vividly remember meeting you & your mum Yeta at auntie Titilola place in Dulwich London back in 2002. Your gentle conduct, whilst your sister was rebellious, demonstrated your potential for great future. So l’m least surprised that you’ve achieved a lot. Take care.

  2. There is a Yoruba aphorism which in translation goes: it is better to die than to prostrate for a Hausa/Fulani man. Therefore in the eyes of fundamentalist Yoruba like my self, Anthony Joshua has humiliated him self. No true Yoruba man will have any respect for him and more.
